A 28-year-old Mississauga man faces several more charges days after London police announced he’d been arrested and accused of trafficking an 18-year-old woman in hotels and motels in Thunder Bay, Mississauga, Burlington and London.
Investigators claim the alleged victim responded to an online ad last summer to work in the sex trade and to give up part of her earnings, but that as time went on Anthony Greenham took a larger percentages of it.
Police were finally contacted after the accused allegedly attacked the woman in a London hotel on Saturday and took her money.
Wednesday, cops said more charges had been laid for a similar incident involving another woman who was moved up and down Highway 401 from Windsor to Brampton and many points in between from April 2013 to April of this year.
Greenham is charged with seven offences, including trafficking in persons, receiving financial benefit from trafficking in persons, procuring illicit sexual intercourse, exercising control of a person for the purpose of prostitution and assault.
London Police are encouraging anyone in a similar situation to reach out to their local police for assistance.
Anyone with information on these or any other crime is asked to call the London Police Service at 519-661-5670 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) or online at www.londoncrimestoppers.com.
